It’s been an ongoing battle amongst avid photographers for years: shoot with your iPhone, and be able to share the results instantly, or shoot with your DSLR, and either go through a awkward Wi-Fi process, or worse yet, wait until you’re back on your computer? The Relonch Camera solves this problem by adding a high-quality camera to the back of your iPhone. It connects via Lightning, boasts a large APS-C sensor and a prime lens with a wide aperture for excellent detail and bokeh, and even sports a separate battery so your phone charges while you’re making photos.
Mimicking animal and bug vision to create unique and interesting cameras is nothing new. Bug vision cameras with, for example, infinite depth of field, have been made in the lab before. But researchers at University of Queensland in Australia are developing a camera that can do something pretty unique: it can see cancer.
The idea came after the scientists discovered that mantis shrimp have this incredibly useful ability.
The researchers have found that mantis shrimp have compound eyes that are incredibly good at detecting polarized light, a type of light that reflects differently off of cancerous tissue and healthy tissue.
Portugese photographer Manuel Mira Godinho uses building facades to showcase his love of abstraction in everyday life. Through his depictions of reflections, lighting, and physical textures on each building he portrays, Godinho creates individual compositions that form abstracted forms of themselves. Each photograph displays a structure that visually turns into a pattern that momentarily tricks the viewer into forgetting that it is in fact a building that they are seeing.
